bureaucracies under george bush. i experienced them. you did, too. it goes back to the thing we started with. this government is on -- out of control. it has been predicted by historians our republic would fail. the question is, how do we cheat history? how do we go back? how do we re-embraced the things that made america great? as i said earlier, we have to get in charge. i have been working for nine years to try to make a big difference. i have made a small difference, not a big difference. i worked to starty -- reassessing -- [applause] changes to the constitution there restore federalism and the constitution relationship. i think that's the way. you're frustrated. you ought to see me in washington. ask my staff. ask my wife. i want to pull my hair out. i see two things. one, i see the constitution, and i see what's happening to it. then i see grown men and women that don't care. that's what really makes me want to pull my hair out. they ignore what the constitution says because it is better for their political career if they do. that's an abandonment of their oath.

, not everybody, but a lot of people would agree that president bush, george w. bush, was obligated to strike back against al qaeda after september 11, 2001. we were attacked, and we had to respond. and i think that most people would say that president obama the very right to launch azeinab badawi race that killed osama bin laden. history and diplomacy co-exist. they interact with each other and they sometimes can complement each other. richard holbrooke, the late richard holbrooke, great american diplomat, i don't think he would have been able to secure the peace in bosnia had we not used force for six weeks to demonstrate to the bosnian-serb army that we were not going to permit them to continue to kill innocent muslims. and it was that use of force that achieved the cease-fire and drove them to the negotiating table where holbrook worked his magic and brought peace to bosnia after five years of war. so there are times when we have to rely on our military and we're fortunate, as all of you know, to have extraordinary young men and women in our military and the army and the navy and the air force

friends. .hey were pretty frustrated they did not like george bush very much. they sure hated losing to him in 2004, even more than 2000. they did not quit. they took the house and the senate in 2006. they never try to impeach george bush. think long and hard. always easier to say try it. usually that means we need to work harder at what we are doing. i am old enough to watch barry goldwater go down in flames. took 16 years to get one old reagan -- to get ronald reagan. democracy is hard work. it is people going out and knocking on doors. is is people going out and voting. .ur system works it is hard to work in part because that is what the founders wanted to be. they are afraid of centralized power. they're going to make this very difficult to do. they're going to have this president for four years that selected this. there's no other system that is is as complex as ours to work and get things through. the founders but it was the best defense for liberty. out.large it has worked i believe that madison came back he would be very happy. sometimes they do. different point of view are s

president george w. bush 2002. before being the administrator of the faa, she was the acting and deputy administrator of the federal highway administration. she was the logan airport, in boston, manager. she currently heads the u.s. public-private partnership at jpmorgan. most importantly, she is a past chairman of the bipartisan policy board of directors, and continues to be a board member with us. in 1997, when you first took over faa, the agency was spending about $9 billion. shortly before you arrived, the agency estimated you would need $10 billion annually to meet growing passenger usage, and protecting the safety of the flying public. as i recall, the budget resolutions that year were only going to provide about $7.5 billion, a $2.5 billion gap. further complicating your job as you are coming in, and assessment of the agency was mandated by 1996, the agency reauthorization act. and it concluded, and i quote, the faa had no system to account for its cost, and managers could generally not manage money properly. simply stated, how did you successfully transform the faa while managin
